As you know, it's an old Wild Dogs custom to allow other members to test ride your new boney - just to check for any problems, you see. I look forward to seeing you on a ride soon to claim my 5 minutes of fun quality control   ;D


Fixed ...
:D ;D

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

I take it that it would be in the order of the day to recall that "option-to-buy" I took on the Honda XR650L here in PE?

Don't worry.  Nothing serious.  I just wanted to make sure it would be available in the event you wanted to consider it.  The option was anyway only for a week, or that was at least the time the shop was prepared to give me.

I think not that much have changed...

But bring it anyway and I'll show you what an overweight dude on an underpowered bike can still do...

congrats! seems like the interest in this class is growing ;)

It's called evolution... or an upgrade if you like... ;D

At last a GS rider can go everywhere! (although the GS won't be on the trip ;))

The thumpers/smaller scramblers/DS bikes are getting fashion again.

Plays very nice though.

Don't push it too far...

But I'll take the raid into places where I wouldn't WANT to take the GS into ...

Yep - haven't been to Attakwas PASS yet... Also not the 5/5 4x4 trail at Eagle Falls. Now, at last, you have a bike that can go with!
